Sebastian Matthias

Dipl.Designer ( FH )

Fotograf + Cinemagraph-Artist

 

At the age of 17 I found photography for myself and since then it never let me go.
After shool I somehow landed in Filmbusiness and worked my way up from assistant to spark to gaffer to DoP.
My main work area was commercial, business-film and music-video. Beside my work as cameraman I also owned a Steadicam and worked as Steadicam-Operator on German series as „Fall für 2“ and „Staatsanwalt“ as well as on commercials, businessfilms and music videos. Within this 20 years in film business I also studied Media-Design, had a family
with two kids, lived in London for a while, travelled through Australia......
2014 I decided to step back and focus on photography again. Since that time I had some very nice projects as a photographer.
My main work areas are Business-Photography, Portrait and Product-Photography, but I shot fashion and weddings as well. My knowlege about light from my time in film business helps me to create outstanding pictures.
When travelling I often just let it flow and dive into Street-Photography, absorbing everything that´s happening around me.
Beside my work as photographer I also teach photography in private courses and in University Classes. At the moment I lead classes in Product-Photography and Photoshop at Geisenheim-University and a Photoshop-class at AMD AkademieMode und Design in Wiesbaden.
I would describe myself as a warm and relaxed person. I like to communicate with people. Humor is important for me and I believe that a life without humor is boring. I am open for trying out new ways and I see life as an adventure.
